Purse Palooza#3 - Rock ‘n Romance Aragon Bag


I’m SO excited to share my newest bag with you called The Aragon Bag by Sara at Sewsweetness!  This is my 3rd entry for Purse Palooza and maybe not my last since I have SO many bags on my to do list!!  Even if I don’t win one of the prizes – my reward will be scratching some of those to do bags off the proverbial sewing to do list!!

I made this bag with Artgallery Fabrics Rock ‘n Romance by Pat Bravo and will be taking it on our vacation which just happens to be a short 12 days from today!  We will be going on an Eastern Caribbean cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale and we are extremely excited about it!! 

thanks for stopping by to check out my newest bag!

Purse Palooza 2013–Purse #2

blue rose 2 zip hipster

Here is my 2nd entry for this year’s Purse Palooza using Erin’s Two Zip Hipster pattern.  I really love this purse; it is a great travel purse and since we are going on our cruise in just 28 days from now (SO EXCITED!), I knew I had to get working on it!  I purchased the fabric Moonflower by Benartex at my LQS The Cotton Cupboard.  I love flowers and this was the perfect one for me because I wanted a blue purse that would go well with jeans.  This purse took about 6 hours to make, not too bad and since it was the 2nd one I made, it came together better than the first.

I hope you are checking out the great reviews of purses on Sew Sweetness blog, this was one featured this week.  There are also great giveaways, not to mention great prize packages for the winners!  I hope one of my purses wins but if not, at least by the time it’s over, I would have knocked some purses out that have been on my to do list for a while. 

Up next: A Huntington Hobo for my sister whose birthday is the day after Christmas, unless I decide to make myself something else, lol! 

thanks for stopping by!

Gothic Brown Huntington Hobo purse–Pursepalooza 2013

kaffee fassett huntington hoboHi there – long time no post!!  I was so excited to see that Sara from Sew Sweetness was hosting another Pursepalooza this year.  I enjoyed participating last year (and was so happy to win a prize too) that I had to participate again because I am always on the lookout to make another purse!  I have had this fabric I think since February that I got at The Cotton Cupboard and it ended up making the perfect Fall purse for me!  This fabric is Kaffee Fassett Gothic in Brown *swoon*

Then I looked through my stash to find the perfect kaleidoscope zipper pull that I got at Zipit to complete my purse.  This is my 3rd version of the Huntington Hobo bag to make and I am happy to report that each one keeps coming out better than the previous one.  My next one will be a gift for my sister Deana’s birthday which is December 26. 

Thanks for stopping by to see what I made ~ hope you have a wonderful day!
